This year’s Baselworld edition was to be the last time it was held in March. In 2020, the annual watch fair is slated to follow right after the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie — better known as SIHH — in Geneva for a massive doubleheader in the span of 10 days in April and May.

Above, revisit the watchmaking highlights of 2019’s Baselworld.
